Our family had an awesome morning on the water with Capt. Todd, it was definitely the best fishing trip we have ever been on. We had a great time from the moment we stepped onto the boat until we stepped off. We experienced catching fish we have never caught before. Captain Todd HOOKED us up! We cannot wait until our next trip is booked! We highly recommend Out of the Blue Charter for memories that will last a lifetime!

We booked Capt Todd on the recommendation of a recommendation and sort of last minute. He was very prompt with communication and we were able to plan something within minutes. Our biggest goal was to make sure our 9yr old had fun. The boat was plenty big for the three of us to all fish at the same time and very clean. We cruised around Everglades National Park, beautiful scenery the whole time. He made a pitstop for our daughter to checkout some Tarpon up close and personal which was very exciting for her. During the trip we were catching fish the entire time, mainly snapper. We caught a couple small sharks as well which was the highlight of the trip for our daughter. Capt Todd was great sharing neat factoids with us and he showed and helped our daughter hold the shark she caught by herself for a memorable photo! He's very knowledgable and personable. We will be back for an adult trip to fly fish with him someday!

I’m a fly fishing guide from Montana and booked a trip with Capt Monson in November the last two years. I cant express enough how professional and experienced Todd is. As a trout angler my salt water skills were lacking to say the least. Unlike some guided trips I’ve had in the past, Todd was just as focused on helping me become a better angler as well as catching fish. Leading up to my trip Todd reached out to me several times just to let me know how the fishing was and to make sure I was squared away with what gear I needed to bring etc. After fishing each day we went out to dinner with Todd where I really got to know him. Todd is a stand up guy with a good sense of humor and always shoots you straight. Todd was patient all three days and never gave up on me when I would make mistakes. He kept on me all and made sure I knew the areas I could improve on as well as letting me know when I did it right. Todd is one of the best guides I’ve ever fished with and can’t wait to fish with him again next year.

If you're reading reviews on Capt. Todd Monson (Out Of The Blue Charters or Ketchikan Fishing Company) you'll likely see the many positive reviews about fun and successful fishing trips. Unfortunately, this review isn't one of those. Let me start by saying this review isn't about the knowledge or success Todd has about fishing. This review is about the owner's professionalism and how he conducts his business with paying customers. In May 2019 I contacted Todd to book a fishing trip while my wife and I were going to be in Ketchikan, AK in September. He was very responsive via text answering our questions and eventually asking me to pay a refundable deposit to book our trip. No worries, I thought. Unfortunately, due to bad weather, out of anyone's control our ship couldn’t dock in Ketchikan the morning of our trip. I called Todd and left him a v/m the evening before. After I returned home, I contacted Todd to make sure he knew what happened. He acknowledged the weather caused us to cancel our stop and assured me via text (that I still have) he would refund our deposit. I've waited over a month and haven't heard from Todd. I've texted him numerous times, as that’s the only way he's communicated with me, however, I also emailed and called him. I even went as far as requesting the refund through Venmo as he has a Venmo account. No response. It's unfortunate this has happened because fishing is one of my favorite hobbies and I assure you I would have been a returning customer. Unfortunately, due to Todd's unprofessionalism and breach of contract I'm forced to let others know how he operates. His website clearly states if a trip is canceled due to weather a 100% refund is given. That just isn't true. Use caution about giving him money up front.
